Anything But Dull

Updated: Jun 16, 2020

The sun may have disappeared [for now]- but that doesn't mean that our community is anything but dull. Check out whats been going on in the last week:

Scarecrow Competition Beginning to Heat Up

The competition is definitely heating up [unlike the weather recently], and some of the entries have been fantastic to see around. To get involved just take a photo of your display and send it to the Tain Gala via Messenger on their Facebook Page. More details are available on:

Become Part of The Task Force

The volunteers from Tain Task Force have been busy planting bursts of colour around the town, but they are in need of more assistance to continue serving the community. Includes: assisting with arrival of plants, weeding, getting baskets ready etc. Contact Trisha on trishatorrance & on mobile 07979680024 to get involved.

Keeping in Touch Hub

Run from Tain Royal Academy to support well-being for vulnerable young people with additional needs. Timing are from 1pm to 3pm. Contact the Hub on for further details.
